“Turkish and Azerbaijani high-ranking officials seem to have launched a contest of absurd statements,” Vice Speaker of Armenia’s Parliament Eward Sharmazanov said in response to the statement of Turkish Parliament speaker Cemil Cicek’s statement dubbing “Armenia an ‘occupant country having problems with both Baku and Ankara.”
Sharmazanov reminded that Turkey had perpetrated genocide against Christian peoples – Armenians, Greeks and Assyrians.
“Turkey has occupied the northern part of Cyprus, with Azerbaijani criminal Ramil Safarov having undergone military training there. Moreover, it was with the support of official Ankara that Baku occupied some territories of the Nagorno Karabakh Republic. There can be only one conclusion: it’s better to keep silent at times to avoid getting into ridiculous situation,” Vice Speaker of the Armenian Parliament noted.
